I went to Cost Plus and saw some World Market chocolate bars. I hadn’t had the pleasure of tasting these before so I chose one that sounded interesting: The Dark Chocolate Chili and Lime. I was meeting up with some friends that night and thought it would be a great treat for all of us. Little did I know the kind of reaction it would bring!
I brought out the bar and some people recoiled at the idea, but were willing to try it anyway. Let me tell you what I thought about the bar first –> the chocolate is sweet and creamy without any discerning flavor…the chocolate gets lost in the chili flavor. The bar is a little gritty and the lime is mellow…you really have to search for the lime flavor. I was expecting more lime, but got more heat. The spice has different impact levels –> it can be tame or really overpowering. Both ways it lingers for some time after eating a piece.
When my friends ate the bar that night the reactions ranged from “Yuck! That’s disgusting!” to “It’s not bad.” No one really enjoyed the bar or asked for more.
